Q Dear Asheathes. I don't usually do this, but with all the shit you've been receiving, I kinda feel obligated to. I just want to say I think your work is absolutely gorgeous and I love the little introduction you wrote to match. To everyone who has been complaining I would like to offer a big middle finger for bitching about this. I think people need to understand that you do this in your free time and have meant no harm in making these. Keep up the good work, please, I thoroughly enjoy it! (Anonymous)

A FLOATING ISLAND MADE OF HUTS” I’m cackling I don’t even know how I came up with something so ridiculous, but to be fair it was in Arnhem Land before it detached itself.

Q I usually love your wizarding schools but now that you're done my country (Australia) I don't know. Arnhem Land is sacred country and I know it's just made up and based on Harry Potter universe but it's still sacred country and it doesn't feel right for the home of witches and wizards to be in sacred country -and what about the rest of australia? (Anonymous)
A

What about the rest of my brain that is 100% done with everything? If you don’t feel that it’s right then feel free to pick up my headcannon and move it to a place that you’d find less offensive.

Q Girl, I think your wizarding school's are great. As Taylor swifts new song says "Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it off, I shake it off". I am a Taylor swift fan but I do think you need a good laugh if anything. KEEP ON SHOWING US YOUR FAB PHOTOSHOP SKILLS!! I LOVE EM. (Anonymous)

Q Speaking as an Aussie your gifset for Aussie Witchcraft school is disappointing :( They are mostly scenic and they hardly even look like Australian scenes, I just don't get the hand one and is the first from a movie or something?, Also if it were to incorporate all the magical people in the Australian and New Zealand area's there should be Kiwi's (The people) involved too, also Aboriginals are very proud of their tribal ways so if you bother to go back fix it -cont (Anonymous)
A

Uh, they were all taken from Australia tourism videos so take it up with them if the footage doesn’t look “Australian” enough. Also, I’ve said it before: I’d have no problem changing a gif IF I’m provided with a high quality video that I can gif because I’m not keen on doing more work than I have to.

Q @ the person who talked about the Yolngu people, obviously this wizarding school isn't nomadic in the traditional sense where their shelter needs to be portable and/or temporary? It's an island. Huts are fine. In fact, I'd wager magical huts would probably be more sturdy than a lot of 'muggle-made' buildings. The school doesn't need to represent every single Indigenous sub-group jfc. I can't believe this much fuss is being made about this perfectly fine headcannon (amazing pics btw). (Anonymous)
A

"The school doesn’t need to represent every single Indigenous sub-group jfc" oh god thank you. And also I imagine "magical" huts would be more sturdy than muggle-made huts because they’d be able to reinforce it with their magical shenanigans.

Q I just wanted to say that all the bashing/criticism you're getting isn't fair at all. You're just making something that you you like and are blessing the rest of us by sharing it for us all to see. You're putting so much time and effort into not only finding videos and making gifs but also doing research and trying to make sure you don't offend anyone. That's more than some people are paid to do at their jobs everyday and you should be praised. So thank you for sharing your beautiful work. (Anonymous)

Q Indigenous Australian culture is so much more complex than what you've portrayed it to be. I get that you're not Australian so everything you're going off is through your own research, but I think you should do a bit more research next time. For example, the Yolngu people are nomadic and so their shelters wouldn't have lasted beyond a season. Also, I have lived in Australia my whole life and never have I heard the term "friendly" applied to ANY of our fauna. (Anonymous)
A

It’s a fucking floating wizarding school for god’s sake I think I am entitled to a few fictitious inserts. I don’t think you understand that I’m not trying to capture every single aspect of a given culture in my posts. I recognize that Indigenous Australia culture is very complex, but I’m not writing an in-depth essay on Indigenous Australian culture. It’s just a headcannon for an Australian wizarding school. I think I’ve done ample research for a fictitious school that I’ve pulled out of thin air!!! Also, you will do well to notice that I actually wrote “unusually friendly” which acknowledges the fact that your fauna isn’t often characterized as “friendly”.
